Ashworth Sweet Corn Seed Pack
A good old-fashioned sweet corn with no genetic engineering.
-Direct sow outdoors after the threat of frost has passed, until mid-summer. Sow corn seeds directly 3-4" apart, in rows spaced 36" apart in blocks of at least 4 rows to insure proper pollination for kernel formation. Thin plants to indicated spacing if necessary. Corn requires fertile soil and little attention. Water during dry periods. Harvest when ears are full and kernels are swollen and milky. Take care not to let ears over-ripen.
-Days to germination: 4-6 days. Days to maturity: 75 days.
